    We have got to target that midfield... Stephen Donald has erratic form at best and Carter isn't too experienced at 12 and between those two and Conrad Smith they really don't have a raging bull style line breaker like Mortlock.

    I'm suprised Kahui isn't there. His position is a centre and putting Carter in at 12 ahead of him is strange. I wouldn't say it's the best man for the job, but then he is a very talented played so who knows. I sense a lote-drew situation, except Carter is good.

    From their 10-12 selection the All Blacks aren't taking this game terribly seirously. More experiments that seriousness. The game itself isn't too serious, but it is an international game. Oh I would LOVE to thrash them... but by no more than 12 points! A mild thrashing

    Update peeps on AB team. Mils pulled out for personal reasons and is replaced by Toeava. Corey Jane added to bench.
